Men's Basketball

2019-20 Men's Basketball team

Basketball was the first sport instituted at HCC, and ranks as one of the longest standing programs in New England and among two-year colleges nationally. HCC is a member of the Massachusetts Community College Athletic Conference (MCCAC) and the National Junior College Athletic Association, (NJCAA), and regularly competes in state and regional tournaments. Home games are played at the PeoplesBank Gymnasium at the Bartley Center for Athletics and Recreation.

Over 500 students have competed on HCC basketball teams over the years. This includes All-Region players and Academic All-Americans. In 1968-69 the Massachusetts Community College Athletic Conference (MCCAC) was formed and HCC joined sister colleges in Massachusetts to participate in intercollegiate competition and post season play. Sports teams, including basketball, joined NJCAA in 1971-72, competing in both state, regional, and national tournaments.
